In pictures: Asia’s most ancient structures
YOU won’t travel far in Asia without bumping into a crumbling ruin, temple, city or landmark built by a civilization that no longer exists. While many of these have been abandoned and are in want of some repair, with nature at times already taking over, some have been restored to something of their former glory. From the regal grandeur of Cambodia’s Angkor temples and the ancient cities of Sri Lanka to China’s terracotta warriors or India’s Taj Mahal, these sights hold incredible religious and cultural value.
This is by no means a definitive list, so feel free to add more in the comments below.
